This course is for students who have achieved basic painting skills and want to further their abilities, interests and projects on the intermediate or advanced level. You will begin by sharing your previous work and goals, and will receive ongoing personalized feedback from the instructor. The class covers painting techniques, archival issues, color complexities, composition, meaning and subject matter. You will look at the work of professional painters and learn to think about your work in relation to these “mentors.” Group critiques will be conducted occasionally to increase dialogue and foster an artistic community, but the main focus is your personal journey in painting.
Any materials necessary for the first class meeting will be communicated to enrolled students by the instructor in advance. Otherwise, materials and supplies will be covered in the first class meeting.
